I won't change my underwear every time the Wings win.

#2277277 4/4 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blues 2 (SO)

Huge game would be an understatement. Playing them on the road will show where this teams head is really at heading into the playoffs. I'm gonna be optimistic and say 3-2 Wings.

I just want to see some pride and effort. Play like you know what's on the line and this should be a W.

Tough loss but they will bounce back. Still a lot of hockey to be played.

#2274864 Do the Pens Have the Cup Locked Up?

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 28 March 2012 - 02:57 PM

I don't really care if they do or if they don't. I don't concern myself with the goings on of teams that aren't the Detroit Red Wings.

Lol why did you get negged for a simple, honest response?

To say the Pens have the cup locked up is kinda ridiculous. They may be one of the favorites but nobody is a lock and that's why they play the games. I know Crosby doesn't look rusty now which is insane considering how many games he has missed but the playoffs are a different beast and I will be interested to see if he will still be able to match the high tempo of play as everyone else for 4 full rounds.

I had to delete all those stupid inverted carets just to quote this post. Thanks for screwing up my browser.

That must have taken so long. How are you still alive? And damn those bastards forcing you to quote posts...

But anyways, Just win please. This is getting real old, real fast.

#2272510 3/21 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Rangers 2 (OT)

Just win. I don't care how. Just find a way. Have some pride and play a full 60 minute game.

Any word on who's in net tonight? I hope it's Joey or it could be a long night.

#2268770 3/9 GDT : Kings 3 at Red Wings 4

Just got back from the game. My Dad was a bit more impatient than I was. With such low shot on net totals, it was getting a bit tense at the Joe but what a finish. Nyquist looked great. Of course, it looked like he was maybe holding the stick a bit tight which could be nerves or anything but his energy was good to see. I definitely want to see more of him.

#2268463 3/9 GDT : Kings 3 at Red Wings 4

I'll be there tonight. I get plenty of chances to see games so I'm actually pretty excited to see some of the younger guys I haven't seen in person yet like Nyquist and Smith. Just play a solid 60 minutes and I'll be happy. 4-2 Wings.

GMR are you ready to be banned from Red Wings games for life??

Lol really? Lighten up. This kind of stuff happens in sports. It sucks when it happens in your city but there is nothing you can do about it. Hope he gets caught and move on.

#2264639 2/28 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Blue Jackets 2

Wonder how the Jackets fans will receive Nash knowing that he demanded a trade outta there.

They would be dumb to show any negativity towards him after how long he has been there and been dedicated. I think they will cheer him just like any game but with that being said they might be drowned out by Wings fans. :cool:

#2263039 Johan Franzen Depreciation

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 26 February 2012 - 02:28 PM

Honestly I am sick and tired of the excuses with Mule. I am sick and tired of the lack of play from this guy and his china-doll performances in the last couple of years. This guy is making nearly 4 million a year with this team and plays like he is making the league minimum. I really hope Kenny can move this guy as soon as possible. I have had enough of this joke of a player. His intentional offside yesterday caused a goal, he took his time getting onside the other night against Vancouver and what do ya know, he was flat on his back when the Sedin scored with 15 seconds left. I could go on and on with his lackluster performances, but I feel that I do not have to preach to the choir.

Yes, by far this guy has been the most disappointing player in the last couple of seasons. (not including 2009-2010.) Time for a change Mule. Step up or move on. We've got guys in GR that are rotting away because we have your lackluster ass here not wanting to play because its the regular season or whatever your excuse is now. :ranting:

Yea it's called trying to block a shot. You kinda have to lay down to do that effectively...

I am pretty sick of reading displeasure over Franzen. He obviously isn't playing up to his potential but no team is perfect and every team has under performing players. Would you rather him be hurt? Because I don't think he is going anywhere this season at least. I'm just glad he is healthy and hopefully will be for the playoffs because at the very least he commands attention from the other team on the ice and can free up space. This years current team is better with him versus without him and having someone from GR up.
